  • Chef Michael Symon does crossfit and primal

    A while back I posted a thread about how I thought michael symon , the iron chef from cleveland, was primal and he mentioned primal and how fats are good on his show the Chew. Well, I have him on my facebook too and this pretty much confirms it. Here are some of his posts:

    i used a trainer for the first time today...to get ready for tough mudder..he about killed me...even with all the working out i do..i got a ways to go to be ready for tough mudder..havent been this gassed since st eds wrestling days!!

    btw..ive done crossfit, p90x, insanity etc...it made today seem like childs play...i only made it 1/3rd of the way through the workout!! swinging those big ass ropes around is brutal

    todays workout made crossfit, insanity etc seem like childs play..i was still seeing stars when i wrote the last post..lol


    I just think it is cool that a famous chef from my area is into crossfit and promotes the primal way of life on national tv and shocks daphne Oz when he tells the audience to not be afraid of fat and meat! lol

    Where do you see that he is primal from that? I really like him a lot and love that he promotes eating offal and fat, but I don't recall ever hearing him say he doesn't eat grains. Did I miss something?

      on the chew he mentioned like dont be afraid of fat and eat meat etc it was one of the first couple shows, maybe I can find a video or something. also his facebook posts show that he does crossfit and the like. he also shares tips on portion sizes and stuff. i am not sure about grains exactly but one of his fav meals is like steak and asparagus, a lot of his chef dishes follow the primal guidelines.

            yeh he is hot! lol I like his attitude though, he seems the most real and talks real talk about food/health/fats etc.

              HERE is a good link of him promoting real food/eating how our grandparents did/eating unprocessed "evil" foods/ shopping at local farm markets and getting reamed for it for saying it. he talks real talk, he does not BS but people still hate on that for some reason! He looks to be in good shape and practice what he preaches. He also promotes family and togetherness.

                I adore every.single.thing. about that man. I have never heard him say anything that puts me off. I have seen him cook with and eat grain based foods, so I do not believe he is full-on primal/paleo but he is a lot more enlightened than most other TV personalities.
                I so swoooooon whenever i catch him on TV. swooooooon.

                    Michael Symon kinda creeps me out. It's that laugh of his. Just can't stand it. It's cool that he's promoting all sorts of healthy eating habits, though.

                            Interesting - my wife went to a cooking class he put on a year or so ago. We were surprised to find that all the dishes he made were primal compliant - that makes sense now.

                              If you look at the menu of one of his restaurants, the food seems pretty close to primal. There are a couple of exceptions in the entree course (the sides they come with), and of course the dessert course is pretty non-Primal.
